Independence coach Paul Riley hopes that his team's second of three straight road games goes better than the first. The Independence suffered their first-ever Women's Professional Soccer loss with last week's 2-1 defeat in St. Louis against the Athletica. Now it's on to Chicago for Saturday's 7 p.m. game with the Red Stars. The Independence are 2-1-2 while Chicago is just 1-3-1, although the one win was a 2-0 victory at Boston, a place where the Independence played the Breakers to a 1-1 draw.

MATT CULLEN scored 90 seconds into the game and again in a shootout to lift the Minnesota Wild to a 3-2 victory over visiting Chicago on Wednesday, handing the Blackhawks their first loss in seven games this season. Cullen's snap shot in the third round slipped between Corey Crawford's legs, and Patrick Sharp then hit the crossbar for Chicago. The Blackhawks and San Jose were the only teams to start 6-0 this year. The Wild improved to 4-1 at home. Goals by Andrew Shaw and Jonathan Toews early in the first period prompted the Wild to pull goalie Josh Harding for Niklas Backstrom.

Ulf Dahlen didn't wait long to make an impression on his new teammates. Playing in his first game since Chicago acquired him from San Jose over the weekend, Dahlen scored the winning goal at 3:32 of the third period to lead the visiting Blackhawks to a 2-1 victory over the New York Rangers last night. "If I missed that shot, it would have been embarrassing," Dahlen said of his game-winner. "Tony made the play - I just put it into an empty net. " Dahlen referred to Tony Amonte, who had scored his 31st goal 38 seconds into the period to tie the game.

I'VE JUST returned from an end-of-summer family trip to Chicago, and I feel like I understand Philadelphia better than ever. Travel is a risk for Philadelphians because it raises touchy questions like, "Why not here?" The downside risk is that the question leads to resignation. The upside risk is that it leads to inspiration. Get enough people inspired and "Why not here?" becomes a slogan rather than a question. Recently though, Chicago has been used as an example to avoid.

"Wonder where they got the name Chicago?" My lunch partner with the inquiring mind likes to know such things, particularly since the restaurant in the Pennsauken Country Club looks like a restaurant in a country club and not a bit like one in the Windy City. Seems that the restaurant started out as Chicago at another South Jersey location and then moved with the name intact. These days, following the recent announcement that Chicago has been singled out by a leading wine magazine for its outstanding wine list, business has been so hot that it could remind you of the Chicago fire.

THE 2014 Eagles will play two preseason games before fans get to see them at Lincoln Financial Field. The NFL announced preseason schedules yesterday, minus dates and times. The Eagles will kick off 2014 in Chicago, then play at New England. That game is expected to be accompanied by joint Patriots-Eagles practices, as was the case last season, only those were at NovaCare and these will be in Massachusetts. The third week of the preseason, the Eagles host the Steelers before continuing the tradition like no other, a preseason finale against the Jets contested largely by guys who aren't going to make either roster.

Last week at about this time, the Eagles were sky high after their amazing victory over Washington. But they got their feet on the ground quickly, knowing that they had to prepare for the Super Bowl champion 49ers. This week, they don't exactly have that far to float after losing to the 49ers, but they still have a scintillating matchup to look forward to. That's the way the Eagles' early-season schedule goes - big games week after week, with no time to stop and analyze the meaning of the last performance.

THE YOUNG Detroit Red Wings have made the mighty Chicago Blackhawks look vulnerable, beating them two straight times to gain an advantage in their last playoff matchup as Western Conference rivals. Gustav Nyquist and Drew Miller scored 31 seconds apart midway through the second period and Pavel Datsyuk restored a two-goal lead in the third to help Detroit beat visiting Chicago, 3-1, last night and take a 2-1 lead in the second-round series. As good as the Red Wings have looked - scoring six straight goals to earn momentum in the series - their hard-driving coach isn't ready to celebrate.

"Whin ye see two men set in opposite corners while one mutters 'thraiter' an' th' other hisses 'miscreent,' ye can bet they're two Dimmycratic leaders tryin' to reunite th' party. " So spake the barkeep philosopher Mr. Dooley, the long ago creation of that great Chicago humorist, Finley Peter Dunne. In his pithy way, Mr. Dooley was saying the same thing as the German philosopher Hegel, who held that a political party can be said truly to exist only when it is divided against itself.

SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. - It's impossible not to draw the parallels. When the Taney Dragons take the field Thursday night at 8:05 in an elimination game of the Little League World Series on ESPN, they will see an opponent in Jackie Robinson West Little League who looks a lot like themselves. Just as Philadelphia has pulled together to support Center City-based Taney, the city of Chicago has rallied around its Jackie Robinson West Little League. But the similarities go beyond their inner-city roots.

The largest Philadelphia-based accounting firm, ParenteBeard L.L.C., will join Chicago-based Baker Tilly Virchow Krause L.L.P., the two firms said in a statement Wednesday. The combined firm will be called Baker Tilly Virchow Krause L.L.P. The ParenteBeard name will disappear, the combined firm will be headquartered in Chicago, and Baker Tilly leadership will remain in place. But, Baker Tilly spokesman David Pendery insisted, the transaction was a merger and not an acquisition by the larger Baker Tilly.

CHICAGO - It took three preseason possessions for Nick Foles to equal his interception total from 2013. But not really. The good thing about the play of the first-team offense in last night's preseason opener, a 34-28 loss to the host Chicago Bears at Soldier Field, was that it didn't matter. If Foles is still forcing balls into coverage for interceptions a month from now, the way he did twice in the early going against the Bears, then there will be reason to worry. "It's a sick feeling in your stomach," Foles said afterward.

The City of Chicago is suing two Chester County drug companies that it claims orchestrated a deceptive marketing campaign to hide the dangers of painkillers, contributing to a national opioid-addiction crisis. The marketing tactics used by Malvern-based Endo Health Solutions and Frazer-based Cephalon were so successful that over two decades, opioids went from being rarely used to the most prescribed type of drug, the suit alleges. "Their deceptive messages tainted virtually every source doctors could rely on for information and prevented them from making informed treatment decisions," says the suit, filed Monday in an Illinois state court.

CHICAGO - By now, the 76ers have an idea of whom they will select with their first pick in the NBA draft on June 26. It's just a matter of hitting the Ping-Pong jackpot in Tuesday's draft lottery to select the desired player. So the omission of former Kansas standouts Andrew Wiggins and Joel Embiid and former Duke star Jabari Parker - the top three prospects - from the NBA draft combine might not be as big as people think. The Sixers have been focused on this draft since they reached an agreement to hire general manager Sam Hinkie on May 10, 2013.
